East India Trading Co. Red Witch Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×52 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate satiny, slightly toothy dry wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap, even spongy give and very rich milk chocolate aroma. First light reveals an absolute full bodied flavor powerhouse with huge earthy tobacco draw flavors, rich thick smoke off a tiny draw, a slight sweetness and creamy texture with a big pepper zing through the full long finish. The first third burns quickly with an ok burn line, moving the body slightly down to medium-full keeping the same draw profile just dropping some of the pepper on the finish. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the band comes off, flavors continue to mellow to a medium body, getting smoother and oilier with the sweetness coming out more through the finish.
Thank you to Gurkha for sending this in for review!
